Rockwell Collins has introduced its HGS-3500, the industry’s first Head-up Guidance System (HGS) available for light to mid-size business aircraft.
The new HGS-3500 allows flight crews to achieve greater precision at all times by presenting information in the pilot’s forward field of view, eliminating the need to continually transition from head-down instruments to a head-up, out-the window view during critical phases of flight.
Exclusively available for aircraft equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion avionics, the high degree of integration between the HGS-3500 and Pro Line Fusion makes it possible to display synthetic and enhanced vision images directly on the head-up display (HUD).
“Commercial airliners and large business aircraft have confidently flown with our HGS for more than 25 years. We applied this vast experience along with our strong expertise in display and optics technology to create a compact, breakthrough system that brings this advanced capability to thousands of aircraft that never before had access to the safety benefits of head-up flying,” explains Greg Irmen, Vice President and General Manager of Business and Regional Systems for Rockwell Collins.
